Tour Through Italy

Societi Bistro is a local hot spot for both Capetonians and visitors alike. Owners Peter Weetman and Tammy Botbyl restored an Old Georgian-style home in Gardens, Cape Town to make home for an accessible, family-friendly restaurant. With executive chef Stéfan Marais at the helm, seasonal produce and tasty meals are the heart of this neighbourhood favourite. Their new initiative, launching on 14 May 2014, follows a 10-week ‘Tour Through Italy’. Each week, a new part of Italy is represented and the flavours of the region come to the fore. What’s more, a wine pairing is offered to complement the flavours. The tour stars in Sicily on 14 May 2014 and will visit 10 regions, the last of which is Venice on 14 July 2014. The Tour Through Italy ends a week later on 22 July 2014. Make sure you pop in to Societi Bistro for a taste of Italy’s beautiful regions, wines, flavours and ingredients.
